ANCESTRY OF PRESIDENT CARTER

Jimmy Carter is a Georgian with deep roots in his native state, being the seventh generation Carter to live in Georgia. The information detailed here is taken from an article in Georgia Life (Winter, 1976, pp. 40 ff.) by Kenneth H. Thomas.

Kindred Carter

Kindred Carter (c. 1750-1800) came to Georgia from the Bertie-Edgecombe-Hertford area of northeastern North Carolina where his family had lived for several generations. He was of the 5th generation in descent from Thomas Carter, Sr. who came in 1637 from England to Isle of Wight County, Virginia. Thomas Carter's only known child was Thomas, Jr., who married Magdalene Moore and left a will in 1710. In that will, Thomas, Jr. did not name all of his children, but Moore Carter (c. 1680-1741) who married Jane and moved to Bertie County, North Carolina, is believed to have been his son. Moore left a will naming a son Isaac who married Ruth and died after 1790. Isaac and Ruth were the parents of Kindred and James, among others. Kindred and James both came to Georgia.

Kindred Carter settled in Richmond County, on the frontier of the new state, along Little Germany creek. This land is now part of McDuffie County, approximately 35 miles west of Augusta, Georgia. At his death in 1800, his estate listed four heirs:

■James, b. 1773 in North Carolina ■Henry ■Jesse ■Martha

From: James H. Holcombe Georgia Family Lines, Carter-Gordy by Kenneth H. Thomas, Jr., Historical Researcher, Georgia Department Of Natural Resources: Kindred Carter came to Georgia from the Bertie-Edgecombe-Hertford area of northeastern North Carolina where his family had lived for several generations. He was of the 5th gnereation in descent from Thomas Carter, Sr. who came in 1637 from England to Isle of Wight Co., Va. (on the James River) and married Eleanor. Their only known child was Thomas, Jr., who married Magdalen Moore and left a will n 1710 in Isle of Wight Co. In this will Thomas, Jr. did not name all of his children, but Moore Carter (c. 1680-c. 1741) who married Jane and moved to Bertie Co., N.C. is believed to have been his son. Moore left a will naming a son Isaac who married Ruth and died after 1790. Isaac and Ruth were the parents of Kindred and James, among others. Kindred and James both came to Georgia. James died in 1811 in Warren Co., leaving a will. Kindred is the subject of the following sketch. This informatin about the Carters in N.C. and Va. was provided by the Rev. S. E. Lucas, Jr. of Easley S.C. Kindred Carter settled in Richmond Co., on the frontier of the new state along Little Germany Creek. This lands became part of Columbia Co. in 1790 and is now in McDuffie Co., lying approx. 35 miles west of Augusta along the old Augusta-Wrightsboro Rd.

Georgia Family Lines, Carter-Gordy: An Update

Noel Currer-Briggs, a noted British genealogist, published The Carters of Virginia: Their English Ancestry (chichester, england, Phillimore & Co., Ltd., 1979) in which he traced the Carters back to England from the early Thomas Carters of Virginia. He does allow: "So far as the ancestry of President Carter is concerned, everything depends upon the accuracy of his descent from Thomas Carter I of Isle of Wight Co. (virginia). The key to his puzzle is to be found in the correct identification of Moore Carter . . . until proof can be found in America, this descent, too, must remain speculative."
